Chrome Web Store – An error has occurred or Download interrupted
What is the Chrome Web Store? First, let me explain a bit about the Chrome web store. It is an online store by Google where you can download web applications, apps, chrome extensions, etc.
There are so many useful chrome extensions available on chrome web store. You are probably already using a few of them if you currently have Google Chrome installed on your computer.
Sometimes, if you noticed while downloading or adding any of the new Chrome extensions from the Chrome store, you may have got some errors and failed without any reason with Network_Failed or Download interrupted error (examples are in below image 1 and 2)
I believe that most of the time this issue occurs due to malware on your Windows computer. The malware is modified in the Chrome settings to prevent you from installing any new chrome extensions.
